My distal phalanx of the left-hand middle finger is broken (complete and open fracture) along with nail bed injury five months ago. As of now, I was feeling some abnormal activities at the fracture site. So I went for an X-ray, and it shows half of the bone is healed from the lower side, and the upper side of the bone is still unhealed.
Thank you doctor,
1. When I squeeze, the pressure of the body is releasing outside from this fracture site.
2. When I get down my hand while walking, I fell that blood or something is following this injury site.
3. Moreover, five months have elapsed, but I am not able to type with a finger as it is feeling a little bit painful.
Please suggest what should I do now.

Well if you are having difficulty in typing from this finger if there is a different kind of sensation whenever you are using it. Then you need surgery. There is non-union at the fracture site. Since you had an open fracture, it is common to have a nonunion. It is a very small surgery in which fracture margins will be freshened, and some bone grafting will be done.
